This peaceful scene is called "A Quiet Pet," and I'm pretty sure a turtle is as quiet as it gets. Well, maybe it makes more noise than a goldfish. Does this look a bit Pre-Raphaelite to you? It is by John William Godward (British, 1861-1922), whose work is often confused for late Pre-Raphaelite due to his vibrant use of color. He's actually considered a Neo-classicist, or as the movement is often wryly called, "Victorians in Togas."
After the crazy morning we've had here at the Museum - a bad litter mishap, medication into a very insulted Sally - I could stand an hour with a turtle.
